Release of Apprenticeships for the 21st Century Expert Panel Report

The report makes 14 recommendations for reform in the apprenticeships and traineeship area. Some of the recommendations include:

  • The establishment of a National Custodian for Apprenticeships to respond to the needs of the economy, support consistent standards for employment and training of apprentices and trainees.
  • To enhance the quality and effectiveness of the Australian Apprenticeships system by clarifying the roles and consolidating the number of stakeholders.
  • To establish structured support for employers to provide high quality employment and workforce development experiences.
  • Redirecting incentives to ‘high value’ areas instead of blanket incentives for all apprenticeships and traineeships.
  • To facilitate a flexible approach to allow for both continuation of training and employment of apprentices and trainees during periods of economic downturn.
  • To support a review of wages and conditions by Fair Work Australia in relation to apprenticeships and traineeships provisions.
